Still No Fantastic Four Trailer But Plot May Have Leaked
Fantastic Four fans are eagerly(?) awaiting the trailer to the Josh Trank reboot, but while they wait, potential spoiler-filled plot details have leaked online.
If legit, this leak follows the previous leaks of images featuring the Thing and the new Doctor Doom.
The info comes from 4Chan, which tends to be iffy regarding these things; so this could easily be fan-fic.
"Fantastic Four" has an August 7, 2015 release directed by Josh Trank starring Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm, Kate Mara as Sue Storm and Toby Kebbell as Doom.
Upadate: A writer on the movie has tweeted it BS:
For those who care, that plot synopsis currently making the rounds is 100% bullshit.— Slater (@jerslater) November 18, 2014
Here we go:
Reed Richard is a genius who is working as a convenience store clerk with best friend Ben Grim. Reed's parents are said to not really care too much about him, and Ben's own dad is abusive. Reed writes a paper for his community college class about "teleportation," which attracts the attention of the CEO of the Baxter Building Research Center, Dr. Franklin Storm.
Dr. Franklin Storm has a son, Johnny, and an adoptive daughter, Sue. Sue's father was Dr. Franklin's old partner who died in an experiment gone wrong. Johnny and Sue are spoiled party kids, with Sue not liking science at all. It's said Reed and Sue don't get along at first in the movie.
Victon Domashev (aka Victor Von Doom in the comics) is described as an anti-social Eastern European computer programmer and hacktivist/blogger going by the name of "Doom." He hates the "1%" - particularly Dr. Franklin Storm - whom Doom claims corrupts science for profit.
Dr. Franklin Storm uses Reed Richard's teleportation paper to complete equations for a machine that can access another dimension, the N-Zone (aka the Negative Zone in the comics). Reed is invited to watch the N-Zone machine get turned on and brings Ben along with him, with Sue and Johnny also present. Meanwhile, Doom manages to hack into the Baxter Building's servers and uses a computer virus to damage the N-Zone machine, which causes it to explode. Reed, Ben, Sue and Johnny are then exposed to the otherwordly energy and "become mutants with powers they can't control."
Reed has the same elastic powers from the comics; Ben can switch his powers on and off (at first); Johnny changes colors depending on how hot het gets, and Sue has telekinetic powers.
Doctor Franklin Storm creates containment suits (ie. their costumes) for their powers, and the four begin to train. Reed Richards and Franklin Storm also begin to work on a way to reverse the accident and rebuild the N-Zone machine, with Sue blaming Reed for everything (eventually they get past their differences and end up as a couple).
Doom finds out the four have powers and becomes angry it's not him, so he comes up with a plan to access the new N-Zone machine. Doom hacks a batch of stolen military drones to attack the Baxter Building - Doombots, with the four coming together as a team for the first time saving people and repelling the attack, etc.
Doom happens to find and activate the new machine and acquires powers (energy blasts, able to control machines, etc.). A fight ensues. With the machine going critical, in order to prevent it from destroying the city, the four and Doom go into the machine. Dr. Frankling Storm then manages to shut it down.
Inside the N-Zone, the four battle Doom again, leaving Doom trapped. Doom soaks up too much of the dimensional power (that gave them all powers), which causes Doom to become disfigured.
The Four manage to escape, but Ben uses himself to protect the other three. The additional dimensional power he absorbed causes him to not to be able to revert back to his human form (in essence, Ben gets trapped, too, in his "Thing" form).
The machine is destroyed. Doom is gone, and the four have learned to work as a team with Reed Richards vowing to find a cure for his friend, Ben Grimm.
